One of the great favors you can do to your body is to drink pure water right after you wake up. Drink at least 500ml of water before breakfast. Can you imagine not drinking any liquid for a couple of hours? Even thinking about it is making me thirsty. This is exactly what happens when we are in a state of hibernation. We sleep almost 8 hours; our body becomes dehydrated when it does not get its vital fluids! That is the reason we wake up with a dry mouth most of the mornings. One way to prevent dehydration is to drink lots of water at the start of the day on an empty stomach since it has loads and loads of benefits:
It will re-hydrate you.
During sleep, our body absorbs the necessary nutrients and minerals overnight that a human body needs to stay active and healthy. After eight hours of sleep, the body becomes dehydrated and runs out of fluids. Drinking water upon waking increases the flow of oxygen and helps in the production of cells and muscle.
It will increase your metabolism.
Metabolism is the chemical process within our body which is vital for maintaining life. Drinking about 17 oz of water can boost our body’s metabolism about 30% in healthy men and women which can aid in the maintenance of a healthy weight by making it able to burn fat and proper function of our body parts. Note that dehydration can slow down the metabolism process of human’s body by 3%.
It flushes out toxins from our body.
Our kidneys eliminate toxins and waste products from the blood and urine. Dehydration will cause organs to not function properly causing your body to hold toxins. Drinking water on an empty stomach purifies our colon and allows the body to absorb nutrients more efficiently. Our kidney works better with enough fluids in our body.
Make your brain faster.
Study proves that drinking a glass of water in the morning can sharpen your brain by 14%. Our brain tissues are in fact made of water. Fewer body fluids can make you tired quickly, sweat a lot, can cause a lot of headaches and mood fluctuations. Sweat dries up your brain and drinking water in the morning refreshes it also aids in bringing it back to normal.
Help you to bring back a proper diet.
Drinking water before breakfast would make you feel full on your stomach. It can help you to eat less and avoid over consumption of food. You will feel satisfied and can cut down on weight quickly by avoiding mid-day snacking! But if you want to increase your hunger drinking water on an empty stomach can increase your appetite. While making breakfast drink a tall glass of water and don’t eat anything until you feel hungry and you won’t face trouble eating your whole meal.
